Dodgers Fans Launch Petitions To Bring Back Vin Scully For World Series

Dodgers Fans Launch Petitions To Bring Back Vin Scully For World Series”

Vin Scully, like anyone with ties to the Los Angeles Dodgers, was over the moon Thursday night when they clinched the NL pennant and their first World Series appearance since 1988.

Dodgers general manager Dave Roberts meanwhile spelt out what the team's advance to the World Series meant to Kershaw. Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Lon Rosen who tells us, "Neither Vin Scully nor Sandy Koufax will be returning to action for the World Series".

"It's easy to say that the most impressive thing is when he takes the ball every fifth day", said the Dodgers' talismanic third baseman Justin Turner. The Yankees have a 3-2 lead heading into Game 6 of the ALCS at Houston on Friday night, so one more NY win would set up another chapter in an old October rivalry between the Yankees and Dodgers.

Clayton Kershaw barely had time to celebrate before being forced to remember that there was still more work to be done.

The Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field 11-1 in Game 5 of the NCLS. Some critics scoffed as Kershaw brought a 5-7 postseason career record with a 4.57 ERA into Thursday's matchup. "Even before I got drafted, just when you're a little kid, you want to play in the World Series. I never thought in a million years I'd get to say that, that I'm going to go play in the World Series".

"It's a special thing, and I know that I'm not taking it for granted". The Dodgers poured out of the dugout and mobbed their dominant closer near the mound, and a small but vocal group of Los Angeles fans gathered behind the visitors' dugout and chanted "Let's go Dodgers!"

"He's done everything he can individually on the baseball field". Hernandez added a two-run shot in the ninth against Mike Montgomery.

At 29 years old, Kershaw already is in his 10th major league season.

It was a stunning display for a player with 28 career homers.
